The planet Krypton will get a close up look as SyFy Network has ordered a full season order to the new Superman prequel series ‘Krypton’ from producer David S. Goyer who also co-wrote the pilot script.
Syfy’s Krypton, the much-anticipated Superman prequel set two generations before the destruction of the legendary Man of Steel’s home planet, will follow Superman’s grandfather–whose House of El was ostracized and shamed–as he fights to redeem his family’s honor and save his beloved world from chaos.
Set two generations before Superman ever heads to Earth, Krypton follows Kal-El’s grandfather (played by Cameron Cuffe) — whose House of El was ostracized and shamed — as he fights to redeem his family’s honor and save his beloved world from chaos. The series comes from producers David Goyer (the Dark Knight trilogy) and Damian Kindler (Sleepy Hollow). Along with Cuffe, the show stars Georgina Campbell (Broadchurch), Elliot Cowan (Da Vinci’s Demons), Ann Ogbomo (World War Z), Rasmus Hardiker (Your Highness), Wallis Day (Will), Aaron Pierre (Tennison) and Ian McElhinney (Game of Thrones).
NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment president Chris McCumber has said to expect some familiar faces from the DC universe within the show:
“What I can tell you is that there’ll certainly be other DC Comics characters in the Krypton world. That’s something I know that we’ve been taking to Warner Bros. about. I don’t want to give anything away about where things are headed, but I can tell you there will be other characters for sure.”
